A Poem to Make You Think

Begin at the beginning and end at the end

But then again supposin’ that road has a bend?


Then begin at the right and work your way left

Or come up the middle (if the road’s got a cleft)


Or begin at the end and work your way backwards

Or schlep up the shoulder all sloppy and slackwards


Or begin at the right  and go in a square

Taking plenty of breaks to sit in the chairimg144



You took from that idiot right over there →


But whatever you do, avoid like the plague

A man with an eye patch who answers to Craig


And a lady named Bertha who’ll be eating a lime

(Expressly for reasons pertaining to rhyme)


Now take a deep breath and start on your journey

And if you get tired? Remember the gurney . . . 


That grandmother willed you (the one from Poughkeepsie)

Which you pawned for some money to hire a gypsy


Who foretold of everything here you just read

And for which your beloved grandmother’s dead  






Until next time . . . I love you
